Education Policy and Equal Education Opportunity

Edited by Daniel Pop

Daniel Pop is a political economist by training, and earned his Ph.D. in Political Science from the Central European University. Pop has served as an associate lecturer at the Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj, Romania, Faculty of Political Science since 2003, teaching courses such as Game Theory, Political Paradoxes, and Political Economy. Pop currently leads work on new civil activism in education and directs policy research initiatives within the Open Society Extended Education Network for the Education Support Program of the Open Society Foundations.

Provides a selection of fresh snapshots into the literature on educational inclusion and the ways in which this enhances equal education opportunity. The introductory chapter offers an overview of key concepts and the principal debates related to the literature on inclusive education.

In each of its four sections the book includes papers that discuss various faces of educational policies aimed to promote equal education opportunity in different contexts. After a journey of comparative overview of research and evaluation projects on education inclusion covering fifteen post-communist countries in Europe and Central Asia, the second section treats aspects related to educational governance issues to promote inclusive education. The third part of the book addresses the challenges Roma students face in education, and the concluding chapter inquires about the link between resource allocations on propensities
of educational inclusion.
